Space 13 by Arthur Williams

Arthur Williams holds two BA degrees from Harding college in Searcy, Arkansas,; masters degrees from Harding graduate school in Memphis, Tennessee, and the University of Mississippi; and a doctorate from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and has been teaching sculpting at ACU for four years.

Stone and wood carving are the media William says he loves and he’s intrigued with the large multipiece stone sculpture that integrates space into the design.

The relation of space between two or more works is a special emphasis in all William sculptures, big or small.

“Time and the size of stone available limited me on the size of my liberty Hill sculptor, but I hope to someday do something that weighs 16,000 to 17,000 pounds. I would like for people to be able to walk into and through the sculpture – actually become part of it, “he said.

Williams’ Space 13 sculpture weighs about 4000 pounds ,and sits on a plinth (a table shaped platform) to enable the viewer to look into the middle of it.
